20 Most Recent Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console Questions & Answers


I've seen this error code going around for the older PS3's. From what I can gather, it's a HDD issue that can't be cured easily. Here are the steps to take that I found, that seem to work for all PS3 systems.

  • take out the hard drive
  • connect hard drive to pc (running windows 7 64bit, but any windows os should work without other software)
  • open up disk management - in win7 it asked me to make a master boot record, so I did.
  • format in NTSF - that's right, NTSF - don't use quick format
  • shut down pc, take out hd, take usb drive too
  • put hd back in ps3, put usb stick in ps3
  • boot ps3
  • a screen will pop-up saying the hard disk have to be formatted
  • hold start + Select for 5 sec.
  • After formatting the system will restart and the update will start installing
  • configure your ps3 setup - done
  • Remember to get the latest firmware from SONY onto the USB drive.

It is a known bug in the game. EA have not announced a patch for the PS3 version, so I cannot say when the bug will be fixed. 
You can attempt to start the game again, but it is likely you will come across the same bug.

Go to audio options, and manually DE-select Digital 5.1. That should fix it. It did for me.

Whether you are hooking up your device through a USB cable or removable memory (SD card/Flash drive) the PS3 should recognize and play the titles. Here are a few steps to help you along.

1. Hook up device to your PS3

2. Select PS3 media icon where files files should be located

3. Press triangle button on controller

4. Sub menu will show up on side of screen

5. Select the 'display all' option

6. Files should now be accessable/loadable/playable

Playing files directly from the Mp3 player or loading them on the hard drive are both do-able and both methods should work.

You need to call Sony Customer Support, ask to mail in the PS3 for a Check Up Fix. They will send you a box with a form in it. Fill out the form, put it in the box, and put the PS3 with the Cables inside of the box. Within a week, they will send you a PS3 All set back. Make Sure you take out GTA4 and FiFa 08 Out of your PS3 when you mail it. Hope this helped.

first thing you may want to check is to see if your disks play automatically. go to settings>system settings>disc auto start (its about mid way down). make sure that is marked "ON" If its not just press "X" on disc auto start and you should have option to turn it "OFF" and "ON". with that set every time you put in a disc it should auto start.
if that doesn't start automatically the title of your BD should be under VIDEO and it should be the one on the bottom. if it doesn't show up there you should check to make sure the disk is able to be read. try it with another DVD/BD if those show up and your first disk don't than you know you have a faulty disk. hope this helps

U need to decrypt your Blu-ray disc. Try this tool(http://www.pavtube.com/blu-ray-ripper/) which can decrypt and rip the m2ts files off from disc. Then u can play the m2ts files on your player. And there is no quality loss during conversion.

Ok then you basically answered your own question. The problem is with your game Fifa 09. You should try to exchange it with another copy which you should be able to do without much of a problem. Just explain to them the situation they have to replace it. Take it back.

Please check the region code on the BD or DVD. It should match the region code set in the system. Otherwise the disc will not play

Sony Playstation... | Answered on Oct 10, 2019


Sounds like the GPU might be overheating or the drive lens is slightly off, you will need to get it fixed and if you do not want to have to send it in you can fix it yourself with a good guide.

Or of course you will have to send it in.

The dvd you are trying to play is most likely not for the region in which your PS3 plays them. If your PS3 is a USA Region player then you can only plays disks that are from USA Region.
